Having issues with the update? Visit the public Fairphone Bugtracker to see if the issue is listed there, otherwise you can create a bug report. The Dev team will regularly check and update the bugtracker.
To be fair it wouldn’t have mattered of this escaped or not, you’d have had this issue. Although I was under the understanding that if you had the latest version of the Fairphone updater app installed you wouldn’t get this problem.
So which version of FP OS were you on before the update and have you checked if there is an update in the play store for the updater?
I’m not sure I understand… The updates don’t install automatically. I would generally recommend not just accepting any update without reading the change log. And especially not if you’d experienced a boot loop the last time you updated.
Anyhow let’s hope it is truly fixed and not just a workaround next time
Well, I got notified by the last official productive updater app (beta mode) that I had my Google App disabled and update would work only if it was enabled and directly offered me to open the appropriate settings. After doing so, all went well. Thanks @borjan
I disagree. Updates should be so trustworthy that users can install them – without fear. Should users waste their time by checking changelogs and forums for side effects before installing every update?
Note that you will not receive the benefits of an update if you do not install it. And an update normally does not make things worse.
I only recommend not installing an update if it makes severe problems. But new severe problems are normally not in the changelog, this can only be found out by checking the forums. In the case of experiencing severe problems, you can check changelog/forums before updating whether these problems are gone so you can save the undo of the update afterwards.
